that big lake city contract that is behind them. they think that atk can outperform by 20% over the next three to six months without much in the way of down side risk because the stock is so cheap. they believe that worries about the lake city contract were keeping the stock down. that's a big part of the business. the deal can be worth $2 billion over the next ten years. if they lost the contract, it wouldn't have been a huge hit to atk's earnings. the company doesn't have any other major contracts expiring in the near future where it has to compete for business. investors have much less to worry about. confidence, now the big risk, it's off the table. we can now focus on atk's monster buy back, 175 million repurchase authorization. plus, if obama gets re-elected, they expect the civilian side to get a major boost as regular people, yes, stockpile ammo. not making it up. talk to cabela's. what happens if the election in 2008, on the other hand if, romney wins, he wants to increase spending. given all the factors, i can see why cowen believes that atk can outperform by 20%. you make a pr

, steven engler, global head of a g-10 fx strategy at citi. thanks for joining us again. want to come to some of your u.s. dollar calls. you've been making the point that on the economic data in the u.s. dollar moves have been consistently moving hand in hand of late in the past they used to move in the opposition direction. so do you put this down to the qe-3 factor? >> in part, although it's been in place even when qe-3, or when quantitative easing hasn't been a major driver, a major force in the market. you have to realize that when you take a look at correlations over long periods of time, the dollar is kind of the currency of despair. you buy it when the economy is weak and you pretty much sell everything else. i think qe-3 is kind of making it easy for the euro and the europeans to look good right now because much of the world is terrified about the balance sheet expansion that they expect to occur and the flood of liquidity. so i think that there's a bias in the market. you know, to sell dollars broadly. in that circumstance, you look at reserve managers, you look at investors,

, this is a city where the ideas of milton friedman continue to get a lot of attention. one of our questions via twitter asks how you think milton friedman might have viewed the federal reserve's evolving role over the last five years. >> i think milton friedman -- i'm a very big fan of milton friedman. i knew friedman for a very long time. i was a colleague of his for a while at stanford. i've had many opportunities to talk to him. i spoke at his 90th birthday party. i spoke at some other events in his honor. he's a terrific economist. very insightful. i think he would have supported what we are doing. one of the things that made friedman's reputation was his work with anna schwartz about the great depression. and they pointed to two basic problems and they're very analogous. what i was just talking about in the context to japan. they pointed to the inflation, the overly tight monetary policy at the period, and they pointed to the collapse of the banking system and said it was the failure of the federal reserve to address both of those problems that made the u.s. depression as bad as it was. we

. >> live from the market in new york city's times square. stocks getting a boost today and is this a romney rally? what is the best way to play it. >> i think you have to look at the sector that is most undervalued. i think a romney victory brings back the return of normalized earnings much faster. you will see a regulatory environment that is more in line with what i think the 2012 market should be. we have over regulated in that sense and the value of the us dollar under romney will get stronger. >> karen? >> i agree with what he is saying. there is the perception of economic growth and if that is the case and less regulation, i think you are see the industrials get better. >> i think if we can get back to 2007 and 8: 20 2007 and 2008 levels, it will be better. >> how often do you get a candidate that calls out a sector like that? >> it is not just the president and regulations that have hurt coal stocks? >> that has hurt it as much as the president holding things back. but obviously romney calling this out is why stocks were up 6 to 7%. the question i have is up to what day do you decide
